Virginia Tech loses to Clemson, 31-17

Hokies fall to 4-1 on the season


BLACKSBURG, Va. – No. 2 Clemson University defeated No. 12 Virginia Tech, 31-17, on Saturday night.

Despite having 10 more total yards than the Tigers, with 342, the Hokies were not able to maintain their perfect 2017 season, and instead dropped to 4-1.

The biggest problem for the Hokies proved to be turnovers. A third-quarter Travon McMillian fumble eventually turned into a Clemson touchdown.

Quarterback Josh Jackson threw two interceptions, one of which was returned for a fourth-quarter Tigers touchdown. 

Now, the Hokies turn their attention toward Boston College, while Clemson takes on Wake Forest.
